However, Black Stars skipper Andre Ayew became Ghana's all-time top scorer in the history of the AFCON on Tuesday night with 9 goals.

The 29-year-old scored Ghana's equalizer in the 10th minute after being shocked with an early goal within 2 minutes of kick off.

Andre who was tied on 8 AFCON goals with Asamoah Gyan, surpassed him to become Ghana's all-time leading scorer at Africa's flagship football tournament.

Andre Ayew made his Black Stars debut as a teenager in 2008 under Claude LeRoy and has since become an influential member of the team.
